A. YIOTIS SA is perhaps the world’s largest national importer of spices and herbs. The company has adopted high specification standards and all its products undergo laboratory analyses before and during the production phase, so as to secure both their excellent quality and consumer health.

Captain’s products fulfil the criteria of the American Spice Trade Association (ASTA), which monitors the quality of spices produced all over the world. This distinction has exceptionally strict requirements, achieved only by a limited range of companies around the world.

Today, herbs and spices do not grow only in the areas that are their natural habitats, but they have been transported to all corners of the globe, offering taste and aroma to the dishes of billions of people all around the world.

This does not mean that we can find every herb and spice in every country. The most widespread are grown in countries with a temperate climate. But, as can be seen from the geographical distribution of the cultivation of certain major herbs and spices, they are present even in the most distant regions.
